Innovative sharing plates and great beers from Blind Enthusiasm Brewing Company. We saved room for dessert and were happily surprised by not-too-sweet concoctions.

2nd time here. Mushrooms, squid and squash were amazing. So good! Had the sourdough with bone marrow butter, loved it the first time, this time the bread was overtoasted for my liking. I will go back again. One of my favourite places to eat now.

The steak tartare was the best I’ve had! And their sourdough is always awesome.

Worst restaurant experience I’ve ever had. I was there to celebrate my boyfriend’s birthday. We were at the restaurant for 2.5 hours and watched tables turnaround twice. Long wait for food - 45-50 minutes from the 2nd to 3rd dish. Hen of the woods mushroom too salty so sent it back. Server Dana did not regularly check in to explain the delay or lack of service. So we were left wondering why the surrounding tables were getting all of their food when we weren’t. After I spoke to Assistant GM he agreed to comp some of the meal including a birthday dessert; however we left incredibly disappointed with the service and food, especially since Biera is apparently the #1 restaurant in Edmonton per Avenue Magazine.

My favourite restaurant.

Menu changes regularly so can't recommend anything specific but it is perfection every time we go.

My wife and I finally made it to BIERA for dinner. Our service was friendly and knowledgeable about the food and drinks. The drinks were very good but the food will bring us back for sure. One of the dishes we tried was the "hen of the woods". The last time a mushroom impressed my wife was in 2010, this one was special. We look forward to coming back to make sure the kitchen is on it's game.

I’ve been to BIERA 8 times so this represents a composite review.
The food is excellent, both delicious and unique.
The setting is modern, bright and lively.
Unfortunately the service is the restaurants achilles heal. Servers are inattentive, uninformed, inexperienced and largely apathetic which sadly detracts from the overall dining experience.

Biera was excellent! When we first sat down we weren't overly impressed only because about 3 servers had walked by our table without acknowledging us. After about 10 minutes I asked a server walking by our table if we had a server and after checking for us she apologized because she overlooked her section and was actually serving us. To make up for the time we sat without anyone talking to us the manager came over and introduced himself and took care of our first round of drinks.
From then on the evening was fantastic. Food was really really good. I would definitely go back!

Great experience at Biera! Food and service was fantastic. Size of the proportions was a bit bigger than most tapas-style restaurants, but it worked out better than it usually does for me. Great dishes all around, and the Pork dish was by far the best. We will definitely be coming back to Biera in the future.

Fantastic food and fantastic service! The table for our reservation was a little late and the restaurant went beyond what was needed to apologize. Comped a bottle of wine and a couple appetizers while we waited. And the food was worth the wait.

This was my second time at Biera. The room and ambience is wonderful. The noise level this time seemed somewhat overbearing as loud chatter echoes quite badly within the space making it very hard to hear people at our own table. The food was mostly delicious but our group felt that some dishes were underwhelming or much too salty which was a bit of a disappointment over my great first time experience there.

At last, I made it to Biera! And it was certainly worth the wait! The service was fantastic (I appreciate that they offer still or sparkling water free of charge, a small but appreciated gesture!) and the meal was unique and delicious. I also enjoyed my beer so much I brought home a growler! The most challenging part of my visit was deciding what to order! I look forward to returning!

I found the winter salad to be too salty and barely took two bites of it. I let our server know but he didn’t seem to care. Wasted money there. Wouldn’t recommend ordering it.
The pork shoulder and duck were delicious and I would order again.
The time given for our reservation was a little tight and we were a bit rushed at the end.

We shared 5 plates, I thought it expensive especially for the 2 slices of sourdough bread. They had no tea selection I had a choice of peppermint or a chai latte only. The duck was fantastic but the carrots were so so. It was ok but have had much better.

The concept of 'shared plates' is an interesting dining experience. Everyone is able and usually willing to share their impressions of the food. It makes for interesting and fun interaction. So much better than the 'shared plates' in Asian restaurants where everything comes at once and it is soon difficult to isolate and distinguish the various tastes.
Some of the tastes were exquisite (e.g. the mushrooms in bouillon) but others not so great (e.g. chicken and cabbage [?] where the chicken was grisly). Sourdough bread was marvelous.
Noise level was pretty high but I was pleased to see so many people there at a neighbourhood restaurant on a weekday evening.
A great addition to the local food scene.

Biera is an amazing fine dining in a casual setting restaurant. The European influenced menu paired with the in-house brewery and wine makes this a surefire combo for any occasion.
